2019 Fantasy Outlook
Sewald's ERA jumped from 4.55 all the way up to an ugly 6.07. He was demoted on two separate occasions, but the struggling Mets nevertheless needed to call on him for 56.1 innings over the course of the season. His performance dipped across the board, with his strikeout rate (22.9%) and walk rate (9.1%) both went in the wrong direction from his rookie season. Those numbers definitely aren't impressive, though they're more in line with a below-average reliever than a terrible one, so his ballooning ERA can be attributed in part to a .331 BABIP and a 62.8% strand rate, both of which are likely to regress this season. Even with that regression, however, Sewald is unlikely to have much value, as a non-closing reliever with a mediocre strikeout rate doesn't offer much to excite fantasy owners. Read Past Outlooks

Grabs second save
PNew York Mets
September 20, 2018
Sewald didn't allow a baserunner and struck out one to earn the save Thursday against the Nationals.
ANALYSIS
Sewald entered the game in the 12th inning and needed only 11 pitches to secure the win after Robert Gsellman blew a save chance earlier in the game. It was only his second save of the season, and he isn't likely to pick up many -- if any -- more opportunities before season's end.

NL FAAB Factor: Waiver Pickups of the Week

Jan Levine finds this week's waiver-wire gems, including Arizona pitcher Patrick Corbin, who is still a worthwhile risk despite a blowup last week.
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Selected in the 10th round of the 2012 draft, Sewald successfully hurled his way through the lower levels of the minor leagues over the past several years, posting sub-2.00 ERAs in both Single-A and Double-A ball. The 6-foot-3 righty -- whose fastball sits in the low 90s -- opened the 2017 campaign with Triple-A Las Vegas but quickly received a big-league promotion one week into the season. The 27-year-old went on to log 65.1 innings of bullpen work, the most among any Mets reliever. He closed the year with a 4.55 ERA and 69:21 K:BB while being primarily utilized in a middle-relief role. He’ll be a key component in the Mets’ bullpen again in 2018 but doesn’t figure to move the needle much in the fantasy realm, as he’s unlikely to see many as many hold opportunities following the team’s offseason acquisition of Anthony Swarzak.
